Chichester City Council said no data breach after hack

THERE has been no data breach after servers at Chichester City Council were hacked, a spokesman has insisted.

Some links on the website were still being fixed yesterday but the spokesman said the website was up and running along with emails.

He added: ‘We are expecting a report to our committee on the incident. My sincere wish is that the influence of the individuals responsible be used for the good of mankind.’

Staff and councillors endured their fourth day without use of their website or emails on Thursday.

Speaking at the time, the city council's clerk said the hacking had been a 'sophisticated attempt' and called the incident a 'major nuisance'.
